Winning Through Losing: The Life of Jacob-ASL
Winning Through Losing: The Life of Jacob-ASL

The relationship between God and Jacob could best be described as turbulent. Jacob was a man who sought to fulfill God’s promises; yet he chose to do so on his own, rather than having faith that God would fulfill them in His time. Sadly, he struggled to trust God, and instead pursued those promises in manipulative and deceitful ways. Consequently, he harvested from the seeds he had sown; he would eventually head a family wracked with jealousy, bickering, and mistrust. Not until he realized he must submit fully to God, would Jacob find peace and reconciliation with his family and with His God.
